SALFORD CITY RADCLIFFE BOROUGH
 

Star date: 16th January 2011

Salford City 1 Radcliffe Borough 2

REF HITS AMMIES PROSPECTS

Two shots at goal – one clearly offside and one an ultra soft penalty – allowed Radcliffe to sneak the points at Moor Lane, thanks to a feeble excuse for a referee, and an `assistant' who must have been one of the Borough players' dads running the line…

Full shocking story and photos here…

Was it the drizzling rain that obscured the linesman's brain in the first half, as a Radcliffe forward, three yards offside, ran down the wing and crossed for his equally offside strike partner to gleefully open the scoring? 

Up until that point and beyond, Salford City well looked the better side with Glyn Barker hitting the post after five minutes, low crosses flying across the Radcliffe goalmouth and only a last minute block stopping a goal bound Steve Foster shot. But any flow to Salford's game was interrupted constantly by a fussy referee stopping free kicks being taken quickly and pulling out his yellow cards at every opportunity.

The second half was only a few minutes old when Salford City equalised as a top cross from Steve Foster was met with a stooping Glyn Barker header that looped over the Radcliffe keeper, almost in slow motion. And that really was the sum total of on-target attempts on goal for both teams, although the Ammies dominated play and possession…

…Until, that is, a few minutes from time when a Radcliffe forward did a Berbatov and collapsed in a flying heap under a soft challenge in the box. The penalty was duly converted for Borough to complete an undeserved victory, to make it three narrow defeats in a row for Salford City.

Referees and linesmen – you just can't get the staff these days.

SALFORD COUNCIL REFUSES TO REVEAL WHO PAID FOR CITY MAYOR TRIP TO SOUTH OF FRANCE

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
